Black and white Christmas

Another quick Christmas card I made last night using a recycled card mounted on to some PM Christmas paper - simple, but effective, I think.

It's another for my CHNC challenge 40.

It's also for:

Cupcake 162: black and white Christmas
Little Claire 13: black and white theme
Dream valley 17: monochrome
Christmas stampin all year long: resist the temptation - no stamps at all
Jingle belles: peace on earth (peaceful scene)
Sparkles forum Christmas challenge 9: Christmas songs - I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Paper players 66: LeAnne's musical theme - Christmas song: I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
One stop craft 151: just for men - suitable for a male
St Luke's October: let's hear it for the boys - suitable for a male
Simply create 53: older than six months (everything used is more than six months old)
There's magic in the air Magical Monday: go green - no, it's not the colour green, but using a recycled card
Try it on Tuesday: make it minimal

O little town of Bethlehem

This is a card I made last night, using the front aperture of a card received a couple of years ago and a picture from another one that I put underneath this. The addition of a piece of white and gold backing paper from my offcuts box and the card was complete.

This is another card for my CHNC challenge 40: for a male (if you haven't yet discovered my Christmas blog, please hop over there - I'd love to see you join in).

This is for:

Squares and hearts

I've spent a lot of time today putting inserts in cards and bagging up ready for my Tearfund on Saturday - I haven't actually finished the job yet and I said I wouldn't make any more new cards until I have, but I couldn't resist.

So here is a quick card for the sketch for Cards and things 89:

It was difficult to get a photo with a flash - the card blank is actually a darker navy blue. The epoxy hearts are Country Companion, the background paper is an offcut piece of HOTP that's been in my scrap box for some time and the ribbons and gems from stash.
